089: Dave Conley: Midlife Practices for an Amazing Second Half

Dave Conley returns! The speaker, author, and transformational coach was on episode 13 discussing radical self-care and now he’s back to discuss transforming midlife. If you enjoyed Chip Conley on episode 75 discussing being a modern elder (and it’s the fourth most downloaded episode so chances are you did!), this conversation with Dave continues on right in the vein of rethinking midlife.

Dave shares:

  • Four practices for living an amazing second half
  • The importance of getting started before it’s too late
  • The one true regret and how to avoid it
  • Redefining midlife
  • The importance of being a citizen scientist

I tried NutriFitt’s whey protein supplement after meeting the founder and hearing his journey and commitment to quality. I like to support up and coming businesses so I gave it a try and was amazed. It mixes immediately and the chocolate flavor actually tastes like chocolate, not like some chemical engineering committee’s overdone attempt. It has no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives. Plus, it includes probiotics and is easy on the stomach.

The true taste test? My teenage daughter even likes it.

There are a lot of supplement brands on the market and NutriFitt is my favorite.
